One thing I haven't seen mentioned is whether the OP's teachers have mentioned slurring. Flicking is a given for tongued attacks, but when slurring - say from an A to C above the staff - I'd flick the A, then slur to the C with no further thumb action.

I only use venting to stabilize notes in terms of pitch.
